Are you a regular to the Functional Fit classes on Wednesdays? We are going to be putting the strength you've gained over the past month in the deadlift and back squat to transfer to the push press. Let the power for the stronger leg muscles do the work to drive the weight over head. 10 sets is a lot but it give you a lot of opportunity for corrections to technique and weight increases as you get more comfortable. Enjoy!

SKILL

  • Push Press 10 x 3 OTM (on the minute)

WOD

3 rounds for time

  • 21 front squats

  • 15 Hanging Knee Raise

  • 9 Box Jumps

CASH-OUT

5 sets of:

  • 1 core exercise (coach's choice)

  • 8/leg bulgarian split squat

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 14 2018

At first glance this workout might seem super confusing, but once you get going it won't be so bad.. on the brain. The body is going to get worked, but I guess that's what we signed up for. Essentially the workout starts at a slow pace where you will have a good amount of rest throughout the first 3 rounds. As we progress deeper into the 'tsunami warning' we have less and less time to get out alive. Scale appropriately to get the most of the workout and hopefully it turns out to be only a false alarm.

WOD

"Tsunami Warning"E2M x 3 rounds 

  • 7 thrusters,

  • 7 pull-ups

  • 7 burpees

  • 3 min max cal row

MONDAY, OCTOBER 15 2018

Starting with some weightlifting then followed by a WOD. The goal of this combination is to overload the deadlift in the skill portion, giving it a 'lighter' feel once you get to the WOD. If the form is on point, don't be afraid to push heavier weights than you have in the past. In the WOD, the goal is to survive the deadlifts and the ab mat sit-ups, and get as many calories as possible in the minute on the bike, as that will be your team's score for today.

SKILL

  • Deadlifts - 6 x 5 E2M building to a heavy set of 5

WOD

Wednesday's class will get our weekly dose of the deadlift, however this time, we have the option to test out the trap bar. Let your coach give you a rundown of the differences between the regular bar and the trap bar and choose what you want to use during the skill. One of the limiter in the deadlift, especially for multiple reps, can be the grip strength. During the WOD we have a chance to work on that with our farmer's carry. Grab a heavy set of DBs or KBs and test out those grippers!

Today's Functional Fit workout will involve rotating through different exercises on the minute. Pick a variation of the movement that challenges you to work for 45 seconds each minute. If you want to add weight to your lunges, go ahead. If you want an opportunity to practice your double under skips, here is a good chance. However you take on the workout, give it your best effort, and remember, it's Friday!

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4 2018

Thursday's class we are getting another dose of some of the Olympic Lifting variations. The key to the hang power clean is aggressiveness and speed. After dabbling with Olympic Lifts we are going to continue to get our weekly prescription of deadlifts. We've been progressing on weight and technique over the last month, so if you've been consistently coming to classes, try to push the limit and see what you can safely lift.

SKILL

  • Hang Power Clean - Tech

  • Deadlift 5,5,3,3,1,1,1 E90s

Building up if you've done the deadlifts over the last few weeks. If new to the deadlift focus on technique over weight, and continue with sets of 3 instead of singles.


WOD

3 rounds for time

  • Row 500m 

  • 12 Deadlifts 185/12521

  • Box Jumps 24"/20"

SCALE

  • 1. lighter deadlifts, reduce height 20"/14"

  • 2. Scale weight and step-ups

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3 2018

Today we are going to work on getting more comfortable with the back squat. We are working through a variety of rep ranges and there should be a noticable difference between the weight you can lift for 8 reps and for 2 reps. Our form shouldn't change as we add weight but our muscles will fatigue in a different way. If you've done this sequence before, try to add a bit of weight. Keeping track of what you can lift for different reps is a good guide for future classes when the back squat is being utilized. 


SKILL

Back Squat - wave sets E90sWave 1 - 8,6,4,2 Wave 2 - 8,6,4,2 adding weight as the reps decrease and add weight from wave 1 to wave 2

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2 2018

We are looking to take advantage of the good weather while it hangs around. Tuesday appears to be the best day to get outside for some running. The workout is an interval workout with 1 minute rest after each round. The goal is to squat fast, and run quicker than your usual pace. Before the WOD we have another opportunity to work on our shoulder to overhead progressions. If you have done this or a similar sequence before, try to increase the weight.

SKILL

Shoulder to Overhead progressions - E90s

  • Strict Press 5,5,5

  • Push Press 3,3,3

  • Push Jerk 1,1,1

  • Split Jerk - Tech

WOD

  • 10 KB Squat

  • 100m Run

SCALE

  • 6-8 rounds

MONDAY, OCTOBER 1st 2018

A simple, but effective work out to start off the week. It might look easy on paper, but if you bring the right intensity, you will be pushed to your limit by the end. You will be in a team of three, rotating every minute on the minute (EMOM) at one station before moving on to the next. The goal is to accumulate as many reps as possible by the end of the four rounds. The reps are scored in calories for the rower and the airbike. For every minute you work, you will have two minutes to rest (while your partners are adding to your team's score), so push hard in your minute of work, and enjoy the rest while you get it.

WOD:

In a Team of 3: 1 person working, 2 people resting , switching EMOM

  • Row

  • Airbike

  • Burpee

4 rounds each (36 minutes)

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 2018

Strength Saturday. For the WOD, no running, no biking, no rowing, but that doesn't mean no cardio. We have 55 reps of three very different weighted movements. We will stimulate the whole body and use all of our muscles. In theory, the bigger we are the more we can lift, so body weight (estimated) will be a way to find out the prescribed weights. Don't get caught up in all the math, though, scale appropriately and find challenging weights and work through a steady pace. You might be surprised at how much the heart has to work doing a "strength" workout.

WOD

10,9,8,..1 of -

  • Deadlifts 1 x BW

  • Bench Press 0.6 x BW

  • DB Hang Squat Clean 0.2 x BW/DB

EX: 200 lb BW would be 200lb deadlift, 120lb bench press, 40lb DBs

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28 2018

Today's session is focused around a partner cardio workout. Prior to that, we will be priming the legs by doing various loads on the back squat. The forecast calls for some sun and moderate temperatures, so let's get outside while we can still exercise. Keep in mind, the workout will be 20-30 minutes long so don't go out too hot on that first round, and get that sweat on before the weekend!

SKILL

  • Back Squat (wave sets) E90s

Wave 1 - 8, 6, 4, 2 adding weight each set

Wave 2 - 8, 6, 4, 2 adding weight from wave 1

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 2018

A goal of many people is getting an unassisted pull-up. Today we continue that journey. Our skill period is going to be focused on getting your feet off the ground. There is many ways to scale the pull-up and the coach will be by your side to give you options. Ring rows are often an option, but today we will be working banded, jumping, or even weighted. The WOD will only be 10 minutes, but we are going to try for some double under skills. Again, like the pull-up, it is a goal of some fitness enthusiasts to get the often elusive double under. Each round features only 10 reps and the scaling is triple the amount of single unders. Give the double under a shot, and get it done!

SKILL

  • Pull-ups 5 x 5 E90s


WOD

AMRAP1010

  • push-ups10

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26 2018

Another week, and some more deadlifts. Deadlifts are a great tool for developing full body strength, and are an incredibly functional movement, which makes it a perfect fit for our Functional Fit classes. If you've been able to try out a few different functional fit classes over the past couple of weeks this might be your third consecutive week deadlifting, that's great, there has been ample time to recover between sessions so today is another opportunity to show some progress. Try lifting heavier than you have in past weeks if you have had a few deadlifting days under your belt. If you are just getting into the deadlift, let your coach cue you and work on dialling in the form for future progress. 

SKILL

  • Deadlift 5 x 5 E90s - building up in weight

WOD

E3M for 8 rounds (24 minutes)

  • 5 Deadlifts (75% of heaviest set from the skill portion)

At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what the numbers are, it just matters you show up for the fitness.
